My x-rays showed I have a cyst on the top right soft palate of my mouth what is involved in the surgery and what is recovery time and what to expect?

Cyst Healing: Cysts in the soft palate are common. Most are small and burst, then heal on their own. An oral surgeon, hospital dentist removes a larger cyst, stiches the site. Healing is very rapid in the mouth due to the extra circulation there. Depending on size, pain is managed well with a short dose of pain meds. Antibiotics are used if infection is also suspect. A pathology report is usually
requested. ...Read more

I'm having a g/a to remove an apical periodontal cyst from inside my mouth my hard palate how will i feel afterwards will I have sore jaw etc?

Peri apical cyst: First of all the cyst is coming from an infected tooth which needs to get addressed as well as the cyst. You will need a root canal and an incision of the abscess i order to eradicate the problem. If is is a plain old mucous retention cyst, you do not need tooth work. The recovery for both procedures is that day off work. U
you should be ok to work the next day. Good luck. ...Read more

I have a mucous sinus cyst, experencing sorness on my palate same side as sinus cyst is it norm 4 this to happen wiv this medical problem x thanks?

Usually not: Mucous cysts called mucous retention phenomena (they aren't true cysts) usually don't cause a problem unless they are so large that they block the drainage from your sinus to your nose. Soreness of your palate needs to be evaluated by an oral ; maxillofacial surgeon to determine if there is a connection or something else going on. If you have a ct of your sinuses show it to the oral surgeon. ...Read more

Not unusual: This is not that unusual but if the area is throbbing or you have fever or the chills a visit to the surgeon may be indicated to check for infection. Warm salt water rinses and more healing time might help as well. If there are stitches they can be an irritant until removed. Time heals all wounds, but not in the presence of infection! good luck! ...Read more

Referred pain: Almost anything that hurts someplace can have some pain in other places show up.
Why? We aren't always sure. In your hard palate case, some of the nerves going there may have been pressed on by the inflammation around the lesion that was removed. ...Read more

My cyst by my upper impacted wisdom tooth showed infection and having everyday pain in front of palate, y on my palate is there pain, thanks?

Pressure: Pressure from your cyst on the back of your palate could be pressing it forward, producing sensations more to the front. Another issue could be referred pain where symptoms appear away from the problem's source. Either of these factors could be in play. ...Read more

I have a maxillary retention cyst. What will happen if i don't have it removed, my palate is so sore and gums are red with infection?

Complications: Not removing a cyst can lead to bigger problems. A cyst is a fluid filled bag of tissue. As it grows the bag enlarges with more fluid and can erode the bone of jaw. This can weaken the bone causing fractures, damage the roots of teeth and press on nerves, muscles, and other tissues. They often get infected. The surgery to remove them is common and with good results. ...Read more

Had impacted wisdom tooth@cyst removed (upper) under gen anesthetic 5days ago palate so sore how long until its healed?@ had biopsys done thanks x

Enucleation of cyst: Pain, tenderness to palpation, and dysphagia can sometimes linger for several weeks and this is all within normal limits. Warm salt water rinses, analgesics, and sometimes topical anesthetic gargling can temporarily help, but allow time for normal healing. This was surgery, like any other procedure on a leg, arm, abdomen, etc. Post operative pain is normal and narcotics will help but not 100%. ...Read more

I'm a little freightend I have a t facial pain in the palate, but been told I have impacted wisdom tooth with cyst@cheek is swollen, could you reassure?

Follow up cyst: I am not sure what you mean by "a t" facial pain, nor how long ago your cyst was first seen, but swelling of the same cheek (as the cyst) with pain suggests that your cyst may have grown and could now be infected. Follow up with your oral surgeon for diagnosis and treatment. Even if symptoms were to temporarily ease up, do not ignore. ...Read more

I have seen 4 oral surgeons. They said that the cyst and the impacted wisdom tooth are fine and i don't need to get asugery and to leave them, even though I have pain in the gums and palate. What should I do?

What are the causes?: Usually i always trust the oral surgeon since they know best about dentigerous cyst. You should ask them about the cause of the pain in the palatal gum. There must be an explanation given somewhere in the consultation. It would be very odd if there wasn't any thoughts given. ...Read more

I'm sorry i meant atypical facial pain, was told 3 yrs ago it had nothing to do with my impacted wisdom tooth @cyst my palate painful swollen cheek ?

Check it out: If you've had any type of facial pain on one side with swelling you should consult your dds for problems involving your wisdom tooth if one is present in the area or under the skin in the area. They can definitely cause facial pain and swelling especially if partially erupted or trying to cut through the skin. Check with your dds again, if they ignore it find one that will listen to you. Good luck. ...Read more
